Duduk Special - Bass A

Our lowest-pitched Duduk for darkly smooth tunes

The Bass A is our lowest pitched Duduk. She manufactured in the same workshop as our other Duduk models are.

Due to its length this Duduk consists of two parts that are put together for playing. That makes this large Duduk handy to transport. The angle in the upper part makes the instrument ergonomically easy to hold.

Playing the Duduk Bass A requires some experience in playing Duduks. Like most low pitched wind instruments you will need a lot of air and good breathing/blowing techniques to have fun with it. But you will definately be rewarded with its wonderfully smoothly low-ptiched timbre.

The double-reed mouthpiece "Ghamish" is a piece of art in itself. It is produced by a different master instrument maker. Compared to other double-reed instruments the Ghamish reed of the Duduk is longer and broader. Due to this structural characteristic the "Armenian Flute" gets its smooth sound. Notice: The "F" branding on the Ghamish is just the signature of the maker, but not the indicator of the key/tuning.

The Duduk comes with one Ghamish reed and a small cleaning cloth.

(Single Duduks without Ghamish can be inquired by email.)

Just a few more words about the Ghamish (Reed)

Don't keep the Ghamish at the Duduk for storage. Put the Ghamish with its tapered end into the top part of your Duduk for playing. Use the "clamp" to fine-tune with your relieving pressure. To get the full scope of sound both the Duduk and the Ghamish need some time to be played warm and wet.

A practical idea: For a secure transport and storage get a cheap hard case for eyeglasses, drill some holes for a better air circulation and put your Ghamish there.
